In my spate of revisiting former paintings, I also revised two smaller pieces to re-energise them. The first is what I’ve called “The Heart of Om”.. I’ve lightened the circle surrounding the Om symbol, as well as re-painting it red to illustrate its power. I’ve also added pale violet flashes around the inner circle to lighten the red background which looked a bit dreary before. This version feels far more energised and powerful.
The next painting I re-visited is “Howl Often”, the words being from the rules for women in Clarissa Estola Pinkes’ wonderful book: “Women Who Run With The Wolves”. I’ve intensified the words with a deeper purple, put a paler purple around the wolf image to make it stand out more, and added a purple line to intensify the red on the edge of the painting. Again, this feels clearer and more focused. Below I’ve also included the original paintings.
